How would I be able to move the window up clearly the motor works but maybe the switch


Drivers side or passenger side?

If passenger side, some vehicles have the same switch in the back passenger windows. If you have those and they're similar to your front switches, swap them out. That's an easy way.

The other is to remove the switch and test for power with a multimeter with the car power on (not started).


Suggestion: Please include make, model and year in your questions.

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers. If you have a lockout switch it may be faulty.

Both power windows on the driver side do not roll down. I can't afford to repair yet. So if it's the motor, can I swap the motor from the passenger side rear to the driver side front?

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

You may also find that the connector has simply come loose from the master window control. Good luck!!

Both rear power windows went out at the same time. Used almost never. nmechanic wants to replace the motors, I'm not convinced.

It may be a bad Power Window Switch, if the Power Window Motor goes up and down when you ran power leads to it but doesn't work with the switch, than the switch is bad. Replace the power window switch and it should work fine.

Passenger power window quit working...is it a fuse or breaker or what? The drivers window works fine.


hi, if the drivers window works fine then this suggests the fuse is ok, if you can control the passenger window from the driver side and it dont work and the switch on the passenger side dont work the window then this would point towards either motor or regulator at fault, if the drivers side and passenger side switch are the same then you can swap the switches over all you need to do is pry them out and unclip the wires and swap them over this way you can test if its the switch at fault or the motor.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
